Really well kept beer. I had the Hogs back TEA. Perfect condition. The hot sandwiches are a complete meal with side salad and chips. We couldn't finish ours. And only £7.35. Very friendly staff and lots of novelties in the pub to provide conversation points.

I had a wonderful Sunday afternoon in this country pub. The Sunday Lunch was fantastic and being served by the lovely Claire was the highlight of my week! Will be back again soon!

wonderful welcome in this lovely pub. Spotless toilets, smoking area, outside bar with children's play area. Great Venu for weddings and parties. Little stage area for bands. Would be a good idea to book if eating inside.

Thank your for your review, although we are confused as you had eaten half of the lasagna before deciding it was cold. After receiving a completely new dish you decided you did not like our home made lasagna that is made on the premises.

I too ignored the bad reviews after a friend visited on a Sunday recently without having booked and they moved tables around in the outside area for her to accommodate them. She said her meal was lovely. I thought we would give it a try....More

A welcoming and friendly, family run business, located on the country outskirts of Horsham. Our pub offers all, from children's huge outdoor play area and football pitch, to a comfortable seating area under the pergola, where the outside bar will provide you with all your food and refreshment needs. Inside, our characteristic and quirky style is sure to make you feel at home, so sit back and relax next to the open fire in the winter months. Also, be sure to get a surprise hello from the unusual popular friend at the bar, our African grey parrot named Smirnoff. We cater for every day eating, to buffet events such as children's/adults birthday parties and christenings. Please call our restaurant for more information and bookings.
